Open the command line as administrator and run
If the output report inconsistency (WMI repository is inconsistent), follow the steps below.
You will need to re-register all of the dlls and recompile the .mofs in the wbem folder and re-registering WMI Service and Provider. You can use the following script by saving to txt file. You can rename it to .bat and run it from command prompt with administrator rights and change focus to following directory: C:\Windows\System32\Wbem.
sc config winmgmt start= disabled
net stop winmgmt /y
for /f %%s in (‘dir /b *.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %%s
sc config winmgmt start= auto
net start winmgmt
for /f %%s in (‘dir /s /b *.mof *.mfl’) do mofcomp %%s
After running the script, reboot the machine and re-run winmgmt /verifyrepository.
If you choose to re-create the WMI repository, you will be doing so at your own risk.
